If it doesnt, the EK rads are great too thumb.gif

How much heat in watts will your components generate, and what water flow and air flow does that rad need to dissipate that much heat? If you can't answer that, you're basing your choice on...What?

I peg my overclock wattage for my CPU to be around 120-125W..maybe?

So I guess I don't know what I'm looking for since I don't see TDP data on these components I was considering. Google is your friend.

That's interesting as it's full load wattage is about 267. throw in a heavy overvolt and that could be 500 watts.

Go to Martin's Liquid Lab and read some of the tests. That will help you to understand how to size a loop.

....but that's the whole system's wattage, with the CPU overclocked. rolleyes.gif

That is a great case but honestly wasn't as planned out for watercooling as people think. On anything besides a standard thickness radiator, unless you mount the fans on the outer part of the case you are limited to push or pull only fans. Then there is the issue of the front fan mounts. If you want to do rad on top and front you will have to use nothing but fittings to connect the rads to each other. Like you may not be able to fit any tubing in there.

And then a link to his build log. Such an amazing build.

That is definitely impressive, unfortunately I don't know if that level of modding is in the cards for me right now wink.gif

If the water loop is only going to be effective in a push/pull configuration I guess maybe it isn't the best option for me. In measuring the space at the top there's about 3.25 inches of space I can play with to fit a rad and fans, and maybe close to 4.5 inches or so on the front panel of the case, maybe a little more.

Things will work with just push or pull. It's just generally known push/pull can be more efficient, but not always.
